2023 marks the 20th year of the Gapaṉ Gallery at the Garma Festival.
This t-shirt features Marrnyula’s print about the Gapan Gallery exhibition.
‘Every afternoon after a big day we sit down waiting for visitors to arrive to start the exhibition. The “Gapan Gallery” was set up in the bushland at Garma on Gadayka (stringybark) trees painted in Gapan (white clay). There were lights set up to light up each print. The first night of the exhibition was opened by the elder ladies whose artwork was being shown. They sang about their prints and the land where garma is held and who that land belongs to”
